    Nice pairing Ash. Both will go well with some Burnt Asphalt.

    Michaels Coupons
    Michaels (Canada) has a 50% off coupon up right now, good for yesterday and today only...(July 19 & 20)
    Not sure about the US stores. Just wish the one closest to me had more selection, havent seen any "new" stock rotate in in like a year, they just keep restocking the shelves with the same kits over and over.....I was sure I had bought them out by now.

    Well I just ordered the new Kevin Harvick NASCAR Fusion from FreeTime today, and again, amazing service.
    Ordered at 9:15 am, shipping notice at 3:15pm. Same day turn around again. So nice to see. The last kit I bought off Ebay took them 5 days to pack up and ship, tho it still arrived in the estimated time frame, 
     If you havent tried them, give them a look https://freetimehobbies.com/ 
    The price on the Fusion was the cheapest I came across including Ebay. I just wish shipping to Canada was more reasonable, but thats got nothing to do with the vendors. 
    Great store....someone tell them to open a branch up North of the border please.

    Cale, 
    Go to Crappy Tire and pick up some 

    it'll strip most paints np. Just get a large rectangular tupperware container from the dollar store, deep enough for the model you have, fill it up and drop in the bodies with the bad paint. I just finished striping the paint of a '70 Cuda that's be on for the last 18 or so years and it was completely cleaned off in less than 2 days. And my Super Clean bath is pretty old its almost due for a jug...just waiting for the next sale on SC.
    Once cleaned, you'll be able to reuse the body, or at the very least, keep it for practice.

    Maybe I am wrong. But the ones in the bag that Brett shows look much much better than the ones on the build up or the ones on the test shot that made the show rounds, if it isnt the same car.
    It could be just an optical illusion because of the no lettering, but to me, the ones in the kit do look better. I just ordered one of these today and should have it the beginning of next week so I'll be able to tell for myself. You've got them in your hands and that does make a difference, its not always easy to tell from pictures.
    Anyways, your Chev looks great so far Jay, looking forward to seeing it done. I'm guessing because you added the extra tire decals this one isnt for the box art?

    Those tires definitely look a ton better than the blobs that are on the test shots from NNL East and even on the built up kit Revell is displaying.

    Those things look like bricks. 
    I just ordered mine online, it'll be weeks/months before they hit the stores up here I'm sure, so I opted to pay the extra shipping to get it sooner. Looking forward to getting one of these, they look like Revell has done a nice job on them. Here's hoping they do the different engine details for each manufacturer and also do a Toyota too.

    I hope I dont get in trouble for sharing this, but Jay Savarese shared some pics on a FB NASCAR modeling page of the upcoming Chevy SS. Looks like he's doing a build up for Revell.

    Someone asked about these tires compared to the test shot ones we saw earlier this year from the NNL East pics and Jay says they look good with the body...so Revell must of altered the tires, or the ones from the test shots were a mistake and they didnt have the corrected ones ready on time to display.
    Tires:

    Anyways. Kit looks good. Well Jay's an amazing builder, the kit could probably be a lump of slag and Jay would be able to make it look fantastic. 
    I'm not a NASCAR guy, but I've got two on the go now, and will definitely be picking up some of these new ones when they're available.

    Couldnt agree more. Black and blue looks fantastic. Great build Ashman. If I might tho, one small suggestion, blacken out the inside of the exhaust pipes. A small detail, but I think it looks better than the insides being perfectly clean looking.
    Looking forward to the next build.

    I forgot to mention, I got my Pay It Forward trade from Mr Mopar (Doug) just after Canada Day. Thanks Doug.
    And thanks to all the others who participated in this. It was a lot of fun to watch the number and variety of kits that traded hands.

    Traded an RC truck I had that I hadnt used in like four years for the following. Testors MKII. IMC MKIV. IMC GT. And 4 Fujimi GT40s.

    There's another GT in with the small white GT. Half are started half are untouched. I havent inspected them all yet, but I'm happy. Eight new Ford GT40 kits to work on this winter.

    Ash, 
    The McLaren looks fantastic....except for the one LITTLE thing... 
    Absolutely one of the best looking cars of all time and Fujimi did a decent job in replicating it.....except for that one LITTLE thing.
    I have a fix....I'll post up some pics after breakfast with some pics and an explanation, its a pretty easy fix, but depends on how heavily you glued your chassis together.
    Still looks great tho.
    The weather is suppose to be humid and rainy here today, so I may get to the Merc...seeing you guys get some work done on yours means I should get back at mine, its been a month now.

    Well as Howard said, you can get the Revell C7R. As for the Mustang you'd have to do a conversion from the Revell snapper. As for the Prototype, maybe Patto's Place will do a slot body...they've got the last gen of DP car, but not the new Cadillac's yet. And as for the BMW M6....there's one coming, Platz has done one, but it was suppose to have been out last October, and has been pushed back monthly since. It's now suppose to be this month....but I've stopped holding my breathe. I've had mine on pre-order since they were announced last August.
    Thanks for posting pics Howard. I really wanted to go this year, but everyone's away on holidays and I'm covering shifts all weekend. Oh well, maybe next year.
